About the Book

Author Eli Keen invites readers on a unique adventure across the United Kingdom in A Book About Us. This volume is the first in the Be Talk series - a series of books for children and young people focused on self and social awareness.

A school counselor, teacher and workshop leader, Eli wrote the book as a testament of her passion and commitment to making a difference. In her own words she shares, “My work with children and young people is very precious to me. It is the reason why I am here offering you this book and with it the opportunity to learn more about yourself, the relationship we have with each other, and about the beautiful planet we share and care for.”

The book is a collection of four stories told by four British children and includes teaching tools useful for personal and social education. It is the first step in a long journey in places around the world where English is spoken and used in schools as an official language. Readers will meet Rhys from Wales, Sheena from Northern Ireland, Stuart from Scotland and Vicki from England. The stories they share combined with a delightful selection of photographs offer a glimpse into their individual home lives including their hopes and dreams and what it is like in their respective countries as well as some interesting trivia.

Not only does A Book About Us unravel to an adventure around different parts of the world, it also leads to a fun journey towards self-discovery. The reading experience is one that will prove to be timely and necessary at the same time.
